race in massachusetts. and that means scott brown gets automatically back in. not necessarily. it depends on who runs against scott brown. i had a long talk saturday night with ed marquee congressman ed markey ninth in seniority in the house of representatives. he's told me, he told other people too, he would take a look at it which is just this short of saying he would definitely run. but if ed markee was senator from massachusetts, you would replace one champion on global warming with another one who is probably as informed and as passionate about the issue as john kerry is. >> absolutely. ed was the chief author of the climate change bill in the house. the same one that kerry led in the senate, eth has also done yeoman's work, going to these international conferences slogging through on international climate change and diplomacy issues. knows the issue. knows how it plays on the hill. it is a top tier issue for ed markee too. >> that would be great. >> now, you mentioned -- >> bill: we were chatting ear

: that's what democrats are nervous about. >> they may have scott brown to kick around again. >> bill: republicans think it will be automatic for scott brown. >> i don't think so. first of all, it is unsure who's going to be in the race. we have several members of congress who were strong candidates who i think can definitely win. the other wild card, of course, bill is does governor duval patrick decide he wants to run? very popular in the state right now. i honestly think -- if he would run and i'm not sure whether it is some say he's not i think he would beat scott brown handily. >> bill: i had a long conversation with ed markey who was up-front about seriously thinking about running. >> right. >> bill: i don't think he would run against duval patrick. he would be another very strong candidate. >> several points in his career, he's going to run for the senate. we actually were up there working on his campaign in 1984. if you can believe that. when he was thinking of running then john kerry got in and he

, that's easy to fix. and way back in the days when i used to work with jerry brown, we talked about finding the skills that companies need for their special products, you know, computers or iphones or wind turbins or solar panels or whatever and making sure to be teaching those skills in our community colleges and vocational schools. you have to marry the two. but clearly, with that, americans can certainly do those jobs. but that's just one little point of difference here i think this is great news. let us know what you think about it 866-55-press. i will be damn honest with you. as a liberal and saz a progressive, i have been really feeling guilty about all of my apple stuff. i bought two ipads at christmas last year, one for each of our sons, i bought my new i-5, the day it can came out. i love their products. they are fabulous products. i don't think there is anything can compare. i wouldn't consider buying any other kind of phone for example. i am going to get a new computer. guess what: i am going to get a new mac. but now i feel i can do so an

. senator sherrod brown telling politico, this proposal the changed cpi, is terrible. raoul grialva, co-chair of the progressive caucus says any talk of shrinking the program to save money is flawed from the start because social security is not part of the national budget in the same way as military spending. charlie rangel from new york said, a move toward a chained consumer price index will be a long-term benefit cut for every single person who receives a social security check. congressman peter welch from vermont who will be with us in studio in the next hour saying that this is unacceptable to democrats and the question is: why would the president do this? after -- why would he pull the rug out from under democrats who following his lead have said, no way are we going to touch social security. now, the very first compromise, the very first compromise, what happened? social security is back on the table and benefits are cut. outrageous, a sellout. i think the president has one more time, you know, stabbed us in the back. and what i am worried is: what's
